Rafael Nadal Withdraws from 2012 US Open
Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from the 2012 US Open due to a knee injury that has sidelined him since his surprise early round defeat at the hands of Lukas Rosol at Wimbledon.
Nadal released a statement on his Facebook page:
“I am very sad to announce that I am still not ready to play ad have to withdraw from this year’s US Open in NYC. I am sorry since I always found great crowds and great support, but I have to continue with my recuperation and preparation to be ready to play in the right conditions. I want to say hi and thanks to all the fans in particular to the new yorkers. I’ll miss you all this year at the Open!”
